Groundbreaking Reverb Emulation Technology

The Pure Plate Reverb plug-in was engineered by the modeling experts at Universal Audio to be a no-compromise emulation of this classic effect. By capturing all of the sonic and mechanical nuances of the steel plate, transducers, and dampers, the Pure Plate Reverb plug-in gives vocals, guitars, strings, and synths a lush, satisfying space that gently flatters any source.

Easy to Use

Easy to Use

Whether you’re tracking in realtime using an Apollo interface, or mixing in your DAW, Pure Plate Reverb’s intuitive controls deliver musical results for beginners and pros alike. The ultra-effective Baxandall-type Bass and Treble controls sculpt the timbre of the reverb, while the Low Cut Hz input filters and Pre Delay further season the reverb’s character. Finally, the Balance control lets you place your “space” perfectly in the stereo spectrum. No matter the source, Pure Plate Reverb gives you the rich analog dimension and depth of an old-school plate reverb system.

      Won't work with Reason software

      Plugin was part of a promo with the UA Volt I purchased. I'm sure the plugin works fine with compatible platforms but be warned, if you use Reason this will NOT work.

      Not the must lush reverb

      At this price point, and from UA, I was expecting a little more clarity. It sounds nice, but both the UA name and the $149 price tag doesn’t feel aligned. Far cheaper verbs out there with a better plate sound.

      UA Volt and Sparks Plugins

      This interface combined with the Sparks plugins is a must have. For those of us who ant to create mix and master songs, unless you have a state if he art recording studio, the Volt or Apollo along with the state of the art plugins is the Only way to go. The best part is you can use it in any DAW. Good job UA..
